Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme originally created by Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming books we’re eagerly waiting for.
This WeekWicked Like a Wildfire by Lana Popović
Published by Katherine Tegen Books
Publication Date: August 15, 2017
All the women in Iris and Malina’s family have the unique magical ability or “gleam” to manipulate beauty. Iris sees flowers as fractals and turns her kaleidoscope visions into glasswork, while Malina interprets moods as music. But their mother has strict rules to keep their gifts a secret, even in their secluded sea-side town. Iris and Malina are not allowed to share their magic with anyone, and above all, they are forbidden from falling in love.
But when their mother is mysteriously attacked, the sisters will have to unearth the truth behind the quiet lives their mother has built for them. They will discover a wicked curse that haunts their family line—but will they find that the very magic that bonds them together is destined to tear them apart forever?
Why I’m Waiting:
Can we just look at how pretty this cover is for just a second? I bet it looks stunning in person! It’s a pretty shade of purple, it’s got wild flowers, and it’s got the perfect witchy font too. I love it! Okay, so why am I waiting for Wicked like a Wildfire besides the cover? Books revolving around magic and curses are some of my favorite books out there! I’ve always been obsessed with witches and this just sounds completely up my alley. I’m curious to know what happens to the sisters’ mom and what the curse is!
